Cal Poly students take part in Global Game Jam

Some Cal Poly students are taking gaming to a whole new level.

They are going global with their game creating skills in this year's Global Game Jam.

The contest features participants from 30 different countries.

Students have 48 hours to turn an idea into reality, and whether they choose to sleep is up to them.

The organizer says the contest is a valuable experience for those who look to be creators in the future.

"I'd say that people who kind of participate in these kind of events do end up going into internships and then even into jobs," said Chris Gibson of the Cal Poly Game Development Club.

About 30 students from Cal Poly are registered in the weekend event.
